My dgd is 6. She lives with me at the moment but the plan is she'll be returning to her mum soon after 4 years.
I have been taking her too and from school all this time, albeit slowly, as I use a walking stick.
Recently dgd behaviour has deteriorated. This is understandable as she is anxious etc about the changes. One of the things she's started doing is running off. The times she has done this have been when her mum has been with us but they've been very very scary as she's ran into roads infront of cars and coach's and has shown no sign of stopping. The last occasion a stranger stopped her eventually as my daughter couldn't catch her!
As I am unable to run I have told my daughter and social worker I will not collect her from school any more. After school tends to be a flash point as she is tired and demanding and when i say NO to trips out or sweeties etc she can be aggressive, hitting etc.As I am unable to run I feel she would be in danger.
My daughter works. The after school club isn't run by the school and apparently they don't have space for the last few weeks of term (we break up end of june).
I am being made to feel difficult!
Social worker suggested reins but even then I am not strong enough to hold on to her! She isn't diagnosed with a learning disability, she just is a confused unhappy little (big) girl right now.
There is nobody else who can pick her up regularly.
I've no what to do about this. I have genuine fear of her running off and hurting herself or being run over or heaven forbid snatched!
I need help 🙁
